Top 5 Targets for Rangers this off-season

5. First baseman Matt Adams of the St. Louis Cardinals. Adams coming off a 2016 campaign where he hit .249/.309/.471 with 16 home runs and 54 RBI in 118 games. The Cardinals have filled first base full-time with Matt Carpenter, so trading Adams is a strong possibility. Adams is only 28-years-old, but can only play first base and struggles with plate discipline. Most likely a platoon player, but he has plenty of postseason experience. If the Rangers strikeout with all other potential candidates then they may look at this trade with the Cards.
